for sandy relief, tough talk about his own party or the impact on the 2012 election, chris christie is a reality waiting to happen. jonathan martin is a senior political reporter for politico and joins me now. chris christie is everywhere, on the cover of "time" magazine, "morning joe," the "today show," he always has a way of grabbing attention. certainly, the fact he's taking on his own party puts him in the front lines of the conversation about how to reinvigorate the republican party after two losses. >> he's a congenital newsmaker and it helps he lives not far from the hudson river in terms of national tv. he can be in a car and be in midtown manhattan pretty fast in a way that a governor of, say, louisiana can't do quite as easily. i think that certainly helps governor christie, but there's no question he is good copy, in terms of taking his own party or speaking out about the hurricane that the hip east coast, he's somebody that has a knack for getting attention. what i'm curious about is what the republican base, is he helping himself here of late and how's this all going to pl

. we are not that far removed from the election. the election was about by and large nothing more than the economy and which side could do it better. as a result almost every other issue gets pushed to the side, but we have, you know -- there are realtime tables in place in afghanistan about what we have pledged to do, what we will do. you talk about chuck hagel. what chuck hagel's role in all of that, if et wants to be secretary of defense. it's a complicated issue, and it's more complicated politically, andrea, simply because the american public -- this happened in iraq. it's clearly happening in afghanistan. the american public has tired of our involvement in these conflicts. this is not something new. this is something that has been long and coming. if you look at the history in polling at least of when that happens, public opinion almost never sort of sways back up to all of a sudden be supportive and think this was a battle worth fighting and those sorts of things. it's dangerous ground for any politician because of that. >> we are seeing a change with chuck hagel. this is an oba

elected representatives of the american people. although i consider myself neither a republican nor a democrat, i very much look forward to working closely with those on both sides of the aisle. finally and most importantly, to my wife cathy and to my children kyle, jacquelin, kelly, to my parents in new jersey, a shout-out. [ laughter ] >> owen is 92, and my mom, dorothy, is 91, my brother tom and my sister cathleen, and my jersey roots, i could not where i am today without their love, their patience, their understanding, and their support. there is no way i can ever repay that except to say i think i'm going to need it for a little bit longer. [ laughter ] >> so, again, mr. president, i am deeply grateful for this opportunity. it will be bittersweet to leave all of my close colleagues and friends here at the white house and at the national security staff who i have come to work with and respect so deeply over the last for you years. but if confirmed by the senate, i will consider it to be the honor of my life to serve as the 21st director of the central intelligence agency. >> the

obama in some way invited this upon himself when he said after being elected in 2008 he wanted to have a cabinet that looked like america. that statement makes this criticism, i think, somewhat justified. he himself said that this was going to be a priority. not just in a first term presumably, but also in a cirqued term. that's why you're hearing maybe more of it than you might if he had never said something like that. >> kristin welker if jack lew gets confirmed as treasury saenkt, the chief of staff will be, fill in the blank. is it dennis mcdonough or ron klain. what white man is tliblg take the chief of staff job? >> well, it depends who you ask, andrea. depending on who you ask some folks think that it is dennis mcdonough, the former deputy national security advisor. some say it's ron klain, who is, of course, the former chief of staff for joe biden. the bottom line is, my sources are telling me, that the final decision has not been made yet, but we do believe that it's been whittled down between these two men. to your point about diversity, i've been talking to white house

american public is behind me. i won this election convincingly. now, i'm not sure how much the debt ceiling played into the election for average voters, but i think president obama is trying to say, look, i have a mandate. i won a second term amid this economic crisis, amid questions about my handling of it, and now it's up to you guys, whether you want to deal with me or deal with the consequences. >> and he knows the difference in his popularity compared to the congressional popularity. >> right. >> susan page, we talked about this on friday. now, the question that jackie of the "new york times" asked of the president. the lack of diversity in his frontline cabinet appointments so far, this was his response. >> i would just suggest that everybody kind of wait until they've seen all my appointments, who is in the white house staff and who is in my cabinet before they rush to judgment. >> well, was that compelling and persuasive and convincing? >> well, i think we should expect the next appointments to have some female faces, whether they're top aides to the treasury secretary or th

to abortion or reproductive rights. it was a major issue in the presidential and election races. joining us is planned parenthood sophia richards. here we are four decades afro v wade, and it is hard for my young people men and women to remember. 50% of the population was born since 1973. people do not remember when it was illegal, when contraception was unavailable, and that could be influencing some of the polling which -- mixed polling which shows a lack of support. it depends on how the question is asked, in the exit polls. it was pretty clear. 59% saying abortion should be legal many most -- if not all circumstances, and only 31% disagree. where do we stand? >> well, actually in the most recent gallop poll, i think, andrea, is 77% of the americans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, and it's been consistent ever since roe was decided, and again, for most people in this country, 40 years later, this is an established right that women have. it's an important legal protection, and even what we have seen in the last couple of years is we've had so many attack
